Semiconductor Nanostructures and Quantum Systems (SNQS)
Head of Group: Prof. Dr. Jonathan J. Finley
A warm welcome to the chair for Semiconductor Nanostructures and Quantum Systems
at the Walter Schottky Institute of the Technical University of Munich. Our research activities focus on the design and synthesis of ultrapure semiconductor-based nanomaterials and heterointerfaces and the exploration of their inter-related vibrational, electronic, photonic and quantum properties. We study how nanoscale components with tailored functionalities can be integrated with each other to realize functional nano-systems with emergent properties. Current research topics include:
(i) Nanostructured Materials:
growth of high-purity semiconductors such as III-V quantum dots, III-V nanowires on silicon and atomically thin 2D materials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides....
(ii) Photonic Nanomaterials:
design and fabrication of photonic nanomaterials and their use to control light-matter interactions at the nanoscale...
(iii) Quantum Nanosystems:
generation of superposition and entanglement in nanostructures and the use of such concepts for Quantum-Sensing and Metrology, Communication and Information Processing...
